Trailer For The Wrestler Is Online

Not much time these next couple days for the 'net, but just had to post this up. The trailer for the upcoming movie The Wrestler has finally hit the web. Been waiting to see a trailer for this all year, and can't wait to see the movie. Much like when the movie Brick came out, I knew I just had to go to a theatre to see it right away, and I'll go see this if it comes to this area. It's been getting rave reviews - could be movie of the year for me.

And if Mickey Rourke's return to glory wasn't enough (actually that was Sin City as far as I'm concerned), catch that killer Bruce Springsteen song in the trailer he wrote specifically for the movie. Rourke, Springsteen, and Marisa Tomei all in one trailer = epic Win.

If your computer can handle it (and if not, get a Mac ;-) you can download the trailer in glorious 1080P HD here.

Synopsis:Back in the late ’80s, Randy “The Ram” Robinson (Mickey Rourke) was a headlining professional wrestler. Now, twenty years later, he ekes out a living performing for handfuls of diehard wrestling fans in high school gyms and community centers around New Jersey. Estranged from his daughter (Evan Rachel Wood) and unable to sustain any real relationships, Randy lives for the thrill of the show and the adoration of his fans. However, a heart attack forces him into retirement. As his sense of identity starts to slip away, he begins to evaluate the state of his life — trying to reconnect with his daughter, and striking up a blossoming romance with an exotic dancer (Marisa Tomei) who is ready to start a new life. Yet all this cannot compare to the allure of the ring and passion for his art, which threatens to pull Randy “The Ram” back into his world of wrestling. Director Darren Aronofsky presents a powerful portrait of a battered dreamer, who despite himself and the odds stacked against him, lives to be a hero once again in the only place he considers home – inside the ring. THE WRESTLER had its North American premiere at the 2008 Toronto International Film Festival and won the Golden Lion at the 2008 Venice Film Festival.
